North American P-82E Twin Mustang      46-256


                                 As a youth, back in the 1940s, I was always somewhat disappointed (underwhelmed?) with the
                                 photographs sent by North American Aviation for my collection.  They were generally very grainy
                                 and not such good quality, as say, those sent by Douglas or Boeing.    This image of a P-82 is
                                 typical.    Anyway, the USAF operated almost 300 Twin Mustangs at one time or another. Later
                                 marques than this (F-82Fs and Gs) served with distinction in the Korean War.
